Camera shuts off when shutter button is pressed.

I'd try replacing the battery first. It is common for a low power battery to not allow the camera's computer to read what it is supposed to do correctly. If the new fully charged battery doesn't fix it, I'd then contact customer service.

In S mode camera wont take a pic, r09 comes on screen

The r09 is just the display that tells you how many pictures you have in the memory buffer for shooting in continuous mode. There are a few reasons why it might not take a pic in S, but normally it's when it's not in focus. Maybe you have it pointed at something too close for the lens to focus. It also could be that your shutter speed setting is way too fast for the available light.

In S mode, the camera will use your shutter speed setting and adjust the aperature to match the light. If it can't get enough light at the shutter speed set, then it won't expose. Keep in mind this isn't just for exposures that are close to being right, only when the shutter speed is so fast or slow that the exposure isn't in the ballpark.

Try moving your shutter speed up or down.

I have a D40x Nikon digital camera with an error message on the screen that says Error press shutter release button again,


Firstly, Unplug the device and pull out the battery for 30 minutes. Also pull of SD card and other stuff. Put the battery back WITHOUT SD card.

Check, if that could Fix the problem. If yes, then check to make sure the camera should not be in self timer mode.


If problem still remains, you NEED to send the unit for repair. However, i would like to share some solutions, i saw worked with people who faced same problem :-

1. I just hit the bottom softly with my palm until it made a noise like the shutter was readjusting and now works with no problems!

2. I took the lens off and put it back on and it worked fine.

3. I had exactly the same problem, i tried everything,battery out, sd card out , lens off etc...nothing worked.Completely by chance and irritation i repeatedly pressed the shutter butten over and over
( without the lens attached ) till it didn't react at all.On my LCD i got a normal menu so i put the lens on and bingo it was fixed, still works fine.I think maybe the shutter was out of alignment.

The above one is the most accepted solution on Fixya !!

4. Take the lens off and continue pressing the shutter untill it doesn't react anymore, you should then have a normal menu without the error message.Put your lens on and you're all sorted.Cheaper and less hassle than sending it to Nikon.

5. I had exactly the same problem with 'Error. Press shutter release button again' and i fixed it!

Here's how I did it.

Get a very small cross head screwdriver (watchmaker size)
A can of WD40
Sticky tape
A good light

Remove the Battery and SD card
Open up the bottom of the D40x putting the small screws onto the sticky tape in order of removal.

You might want to take pic with another camera so you know where all the screws go.
Then remove the metal plate (used for the tripod mount, you will need to remove the back of the D40x as well, it's only 2 screws)

6. Spray a SMALL amount of WD40 onto the red and white gear wheels.
(Don't use so much that it drips down onto the optics, you don't want oil in there!!!)

Put the battery in and hold it down to make contact, put in the sd card and switch on the camera and try the shutter button. (switch it to manual focus or it might try hunting around for ages for focus)

It might start working, if not move the red wheel a few stops and try again.

Once it's lubed up and the wheels move it should be ok.
Keep taking pics until you feel it is ok.

Then reassemble following the screws backwards on the sticky tape.

Enjoy your D40x once again ;-)

If problem still persists, contact NIKON at :-

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I have M1033 - when the shutter button is pressed half way down it wont focus and shows a red AF on screen. The pics are blurred. Batteries have been changed and lens cleaned.Help please

The red AF is autofocus. If it is red it isn't focused. You will have to hold the button until the red light turns green, then release the button.

Samsung S760 wont turn on properly - beeps twice lens comes out n in, then goes off n beeps again

it may be a lens error. mine does that all the time. make sure you remove the batteries or make sure it can't turn on while it is in a jam packed place like a purse or the case for it because the lens could get jammed. it sounds like that's what your problem is.

Shutter sticks

Does the light flash for 10 seconds, with a series of beeps getting faster before the picture is taken so you miss the shot, or are you saying the shutter stays open for several seconds giving you a whiteout picture?

If the former, then the self-timer is on. Press the button on the back of the camera to the right of the displays just under the AV button. The display icon will change from :-
Hand sweeping round clock = self timer mode
Simple square = single shot mode
Stacked squares = multi shot (keep finger pressed to keep shooting)
